5 07-NEM5-WBAns-CH07 7/20/04 4:36 PM Page 66 5 Measuring Angles in Polygons Identify and classify regular polygons by their angle measures 1 Match these shapes with the angle clues below Name each shape 1 5 A regular polygon is a polygon with equal angle measures and equal side lengths a) 100, 100, 80, 80 b) 120, 120, 60, 60 c) 60, 60, 60 d) 90, 90, 90, 90 e) 30, 30, 150, trapezoid (shape 1) parallelogram (shape 8) equilateral triangle (shape 3) square (shape 4) parallelogram (shape 6) Regular polygons are identified by the number of sides The angle measure in a regular polygon increases as the number of sides increases For example: Each angle in a regular hexagon is greater than each angle in a square, because a hexagon has 6 sides while a square has only 4 sides 2 Write angle clues for the remaining polygons Match the shapes with your angle clues Name each shape Angle clue: 108, 108, 108, 108, 108 Shape: pentagon (shape 7) Angle clue: 120, 120, 120, 120, 120, 120 Shape: hexagon (shape 5) Angle clue: 135, 135, 135, 135, 135, 135, 135, 135 Shape: octagon (shape 2) 3 Without measuring, predict the size of angle A Use what you know about the relationship between the number of sides and angle measures in a regular polygon Angle A will be less than 135 but greater than 120 A 66 Answers Chapter 7: 2-D Geometry Copyright 2005 by Thomson Nelson

6 07-NEM5-WBAns-CH07 7/20/04 4:36 PM Page 67 6 Properties of Polygons Investigate properties of geometric shapes 1 Match the polygons with the property riddles below The properties of a shape are the features that describe it For example: The properties of a regular hexagon are 6 equal sides, 6 equal angles (all obtuse), 3 pairs of parallel sides, and 6 lines of symmetry Because no other shape shares all the same properties, a shape can be identified by its properties a) I have no parallel sides b) I have 3 pairs of parallel sides All my sides are equal in length All my sides are equal in length All my angles are equal All my angles are obtuse I have 5 lines of symmetry I have 6 lines of symmetry Who am I? Who am I? pentagon hexagon c) I have 2 pairs of parallel sides d) I have 2 pairs of parallel sides All my sides are equal in length My opposite sides are equal in length I have 2 pairs of equal angles All my angles are equal in size I have 2 lines of symmetry I have 2 lines of symmetry Who am I? Who am I? rhombus rectangle 2 Write property riddles for two of the remaining polygons Write about parallel sides, side lengths, angle measures, and lines of symmetry Name each polygon a) b) I have 4 pairs of parallel sides I have no parallel sides All my sides are equal in length All my angles are equal I have 8 lines of symmetry Who am I? octagon I have 2 sides that are equal in length Two of my angles are equal I have 1 line of symmetry Who am I? isosceles triangle Copyright 2005 by Thomson Nelson Answers Chapter 7: 2-D Geometry 67

7 07-NEM5-WBAns-CH07 7/20/04 4:36 PM Page 68 7 Sorting Polygons Sort and classify polygons by sides, angles, and vertices 1 Use a Venn diagram to sort these shapes using two of the properties below number of sides number of angles number of vertices number of lines of symmetry parallel sides equal side lengths equal angles kinds of angles All angles equal At least 2 parallel sides Polygons can be sorted based on number of sides number of angles number of vertices number of lines of symmetry parallel sides equal side lengths equal angles kinds of angles In a polygon, the number of angles and the number of vertices are equal to the number of sides An irregular polygon is a polygon with different angle measures and different side lengths For example: A Venn diagram is a drawing with overlapping circles inside a rectangle This type of diagram is helpful when sorting shapes or numbers 2 Are there any shapes inside both circles? If so, what properties do these shapes have in common? (using suggested answer given) octagon, hexagon, square, and rectangle All these shapes have all angles equal and at least 2 parallel sides 3 Are there any shapes outside both circles? If so, why are they placed there? (using suggested answer given) isosceles triangle This shape has neither all angles equal nor at least 2 parallel sides 68 Answers Chapter 7: 2-D Geometry Copyright 2005 by Thomson Nelson

8 07-NEM5-WBAns-CH07 7/20/04 4:36 PM Page 69 8 Communicate About Shapes Use math language to describe geometric ideas 1 To describe how to draw a picture made of polygons, remember to use the Communication Checklist a) Write directions for a friend to draw the picture shown The body of the car is made up of a trapezoid at the top The bottom part of the body of the car is a rectangle The true test of whether or not your directions are clear is if someone else can reproduce the picture exactly Communication Checklist Did you show the right amount of detail? Did you use math language? Did you include only necessary information? There are 2 windows in the top part of the car They are shaped like parallelograms There is 1 door handle below each window in the rectangular body of the car The door handles are rhombuses There is a roof rack shaped like a thin rectangle The rectangle rests on two small squares, which are on top of the body of the car There are 2 wheels, which are circles There are 3 triangles inside each wheel b) Use the Communication Checklist to identify the strengths of your directions List them I used math language for all the polygons I included all the details, but did not include unnecessary information such as colours, and exact measurements of lengths and angles 2 If possible, test your directions by having a Grade 6 student use them to draw the picture Copyright 2005 by Thomson Nelson Answers Chapter 7: 2-D Geometry 69
